DoM3 (Digital Ops Monthly 3) - March 28th (date got changed!) - Ann Arbor, MI


#1

IMPORTANT
THE TOURNAMENT HAS TO BE PUSHED BACK TO SATURDAY, MARCH 28TH DUE TO A FAMILY EMERGENCY ON MY PART. SORRY FOR ANY PROBLEM. TELL EVERYONE SO THEY DON’T SHOW FOR NOTHING.

Once again, we had a good tournament. There’s gonna be a couple of great new things for number 3 though, so you better be ready :smiley:

Date
March 21st, starting at noon.

Place
Digital Ops
525 E Liberty St.
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
734.994.1595
www.digitalops.com

Ops is a LAN center. It’s in a basement, and the entrance from the street is just a door. Look carefully and you’ll find it, there’s a sign.

You can find parking in a structure on Maynard street, less than a block away from the store. If you’re standing in front of ops you can see the parking structure straight ahead.

If that’s full up, the Downtown Library’s parking lot is also very close by. It has entrances on Division and on 5th. Just drive west from Ops and turn left on 5th, and you’ll see it on your left.

New parking option!

There’s apparently an exit that come out right next to ops.

Sorry, but it’s Saturday again, so you gotta pay :confused:

Featured Games
Street Fighter 4 ()
Tatsunoko vs. Capcom (Wii, but I have adapters for PS2 controllers)
Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix (
)
Guilty Gear XX Accent Core (PS2)
Soul Calibur 4 (360)
Street Fighter 3: Third Strike (PS2)

PLUS - Random sf4 teams

We’re going to do SF4 on Playstation and Xbox. People can borrow sticks or adapters if they need them. If someone can’t deal with playing on one or the other, we’ll try to work it out, but PS3 will be the default.

Free Side Tournament
The “what the fuck is this game…?” tournament. I’m going to find a bunch of shitty ass, totally unknown fighting games for this free side tournament and the game will switch every round. Why not, right? Featuring Battle Fantasia, Gundam Battle Assault, and more.

Schedule
12:00 noon - Registration starts.
1:00 - Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, Street Fighter 3, Free Tournament, the exhibition match and SF4 teams.
4:00 - Food break.
5:00 - Street Fighter 4, Guilty Gear, Street Fighter 2 HD and Soul Calibur 4.

New Things at DoM3

Other than teams being undrandomed, and the new free tournament, there are going to be two other very cool new things at DoM3.

First, FOOD. I’m working on getting either some free, or discount food for the tournament. That means no more wandering downtown to find your dinner/lunch, there’s gonna be something cheaper right in the store :smiley:
I’m not sure yet if it’ll be baked goods, or sandwiches or what, but it’ll be good.

Second, I’m setting up a Michigan vs. Ohio exhibition match. It’s still in the planning stages, but it looks like it’ll be a 5v5 in Street Fighter 4. Set up your side bets now :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

I propose our team be the top 5 players from the last tournament. That’s Grego, Ladymachine, 50/50, Sean, and Ryujin and STD could play off for the fifth spot.

Rules and CASH
No game freezing glitches. No button macros. No turbo. No pausing.

There is a $5 venue fee that goes to the store. After that, each tournament costs $10 to enter, and that money goes directly into the tournament’s prize pool. For the team tournament it costs $5 per person to enter. Top team splits 70, second team splits 20 and third splits 10.

If a tournament has 6 or less players, 2nd place gets their entry fee back, and first gets the rest.

If there are 5 or less player’s it’ll be round robin. If a tournament has 6 or more it will be double elimination.

The top four players in TvC and SF4 from last tournament will be seeded for this one. Other than that it’s random seeding, but I’ll try to keep you from playing your friends in early rounds.

Other Stuff
If you can bring a set up contact me and you may get your venue fee waived.

Ops sells drinks, and there’s several food spots within close walking distance, including Potbelly’s, Jimmy John’s, Noodles and Co. and NYPD.

Preregistration
If you’re planning on attending, please post and let me know what games you’re gonna play. If someone comes to this thread and sees a bunch of people signed up they’ll be more likely to show up, so PREREGISTER.

I’d like to sign up for SFIV singles + teams, HDRemix, and free side tourney, but I won’t tell you so far ahead of time only to bitch out at the last minute again. I’ll tell you a couple weeks down the line if I can show for sure.

So pissed that I missed the first two. Can’t wait for this.


#3

Signing up for SF4 singles for sure, hopefully sf4 teams & the free tourney too.
What’s this exhibition match?


#4

Michigan vs. Ohio.

It’s in the “New Stuff” section.


#5

If you want to do a MI vs. OH sometime we’d prob have to work it out more in advance. Also, since no one is very good at the game yet I think 3v3 in other games too would be more interesting (3s, Marvel, SF:HD, etc.). If MI has some players coming down to Josh’s April tourney maybe we could do an MI v OH then too.

I’d like to make it up to one of your tournies sometime but I’m out of town that weekend. Have fun though!


#6

I talked to Arkayne and he said he’d try to set it up.

It may not be the best of both states, but it’ll still be fun.


#7

Buckeyes vs. Wolverines all over again :rofl:. I’ll try my best to be there, sorry we couldn’t make your previous ones though. Last time I think the date clashed with Indiana’s tourney.


#8

Too bad Battle Fantasia isn’t sh*Tty, or unknown.

We’ll see, depending on how far North of the southern border Ann Arbor is.


#9

You can put me down for the SF IV single tournament. Its the place across from the Brown Jug and Pinball Pete’s, right? Do you need any other information, like my name or nickname?


#10

It’s fairly close to the boarder.

Battle Fantasia, isn’t shitty, but no one would pay to play it so w/e.

Got ya. It’s actually across the diag from Pete’s.


#11

I’ll be there, idiot savant-ing my way to not last.


#12

In that area, right?


#13

So it’s only $5 to go plus play time I’m guessing? I really just want to find more ppl in my area that play SF 3/4. I’ve never entered a tournament before cause I don’t play against enough live ppl to be any good. That’s changing now that sf4 is on xbox live, but I still won’t be prepared. Are people constantly playing even if they’re not in a tourny? Cause that’s what I’m looking for, I need to get my ass kicked a bunch of times by live players so I can get better. Though as a show of support I’ll enter the tourneys and lose. Also I have 3rd strike on xbox and and iv on 360 if it helps, never played either on ps2. I could lug a system out there if need be, but I’m not hauling a screen.


#14

Hey kitty.

It’s $5 venue fee (goes to the store) and $10 for each game you plan on entering. The $10 fees all go to the prize pool. You don’t have to pay for your time, the venue fee covers that.

If you want to get some casual games in today there are a few people meeting at Get Your Game on (www.getyourgameonline) today at 1:00.


#15

This looks interesting. Whos taping it?


#16

Would you guys rather the 2v2 be random again?


#17

pre reg: sf4 teams, sf4, tvc , hdr

Random teams are silly, but will people still join if grego and I are on the same team? =P

Also, I had like 341 money matches lined up last time and only one of them went down. Hmm


#18

Sign me up for some sf4 teams, sf4, tvc and gg. My brother will also play gg and probably sf4teams.

The point of teams in sf4 is to make it more casual and encourage newcomers so I like random. It’s not like sf3 where the point is so that everyone doesn’t use chun-li. I think you also forgot the best part about team tournaments, the team names.

Get Hype!

I have the original A4 size of this image to print but I don’t have anywhere to upload it.

Thanks for making the flier! I’ll get some printed up asap.

No idea how many from Ohio will go, hopefully we’ll figure out our team situation soon to bring the comp! :nunchuck:
